This course counts for the 40 hour advanced PV course education requirement found in SEC 3.5 of the NABCEP Candidate Handbook needed to sit for the NABCEP PV Installation Professional Certification Exam. The bulk of this week-long workshop covers topics relating to the National Electrical CodeĀ® (NEC) requirements for PV systems and prepares the participant for proper code compliance, wire sizing, equipment specifications, permit processing, commissioning and other necessary steps in the design and installation phases of residential and commercial systems. Activities in this workshop include designing a multiple inverter commercial PV system, from choosing equipment to processing forms, and a tour of commercial PV systems.
